In 1990, Dr. J. K. Mutiso established a consultancy, Dr. J. K. Mutiso’s clinic that focused on psychiatric care for people dealing with mental health challenges. The clinic’s work in counselling and psychotherapy grew through routine collaboration with external counsellors, counselling psychologists and clinical psychologists.
With time, it became clear that a significant number of the patients referred to external clinics for psychotherapy were not following through, that highlighted the need for in-house psychotherapy services.
Gilead Mental Health Consultants, GMHC, has grown organically to serve the whole person by integrating the psychiatric, psychological, physical and social dimensions of every individual, undergirded by a Christian world view. It is built around a clear purpose driven by the need for total mental wholeness.
